Welcome to the Shafted Writers Club, home to writer DC Pae, future ace Freediver.

Firstly, eternal gratitude to anyone who donates, it’s appreciated from cellular to cosmological level.

So my Patreon is, naturally, all about Freediving, obvious right… because I’m an enthusiast who needs further training. And I’m going to become an instructor so I can travel around Asia, or anywhere (and possibly everywhere) else documenting it all for You. But I’ll still be writing - And diving, and there’ll be sun and sea and wildlife and interesting oceanic scenes for your pleasure. And travel writing; I’m certain there’ll be a lot more of that. And there’ll be art as I’m a painter to boot.

I’m a writer of novels, non-fiction, film, TV and all the other stuff floating around out there that you probably never really notice. I’m also a ghostwriter, so you may not even know that your favourite author is actually yours truly. And because I’m a writer, and it’s an odd creative existence with not a great deal of security, sometimes things get tough. Especially when your work is endlessly bootlegged, so you don’t actually get paid for your travail. Oh, and I live in Central London and when I’m not there I’m in New York City, two of the most expensive places to live and work on the planet. Sounds glamorous… *coughs*

But there’s more to life than being stuck behind a desk.

So please help me get myself to Asia to learn my new trade, buy some cans of beans to live off and generally be a lot more interesting than I am in London. And I’ll document it all for ya’ll, naturally. Things might get a bit more turquoise round these parts.

Thanks guys!

Tiers
Gratitude
$1 or more per creation
My heartfelt thanks for your support.
Blog
$2 or more per creation
My gratitude, naturally, and access to the private Patreon feed which will be a compendium of my ramblings. I promise not to go mad and over-do it with millions of posts. Mwahaha! Envisage one a fortnight (every 2 weeks).
Short Stories
$5 or more per creation
My eternal gratitude and a short story once a month, and why not. You also get access to the private Patreon feed.
The Book!
$25 or more per creation
Expert level gratitude and a copy of my next novel, Fisk, which I'll publish as an e-book when I've reached the $2000 goal. It's a psychological, historically based, supernatural literary festival of brilliance set in London. And you get it here first. Plus everything in the previous tiers.
Thanks!
$125 or more per creation only 12 left
Master level gratitude and a 'thanks' in my new book, Fisk, so get in quick before I reach $2000 and produce it. Double cough. High hopes indeed. God loves a trier. You also get everything in tiers 1, 2 and 3.
One-to-One Video Consult/Chat
$175 or more per creation only 5 left
Hero levels of gratitude and a chinwag with yours truly. And I can talk rubbish for days, but I can also offer advice on your screenplay, script, or anything else (as I moonlight as a script consultant) or simply offer the thrill of staring into my big blue eyes.


Plus everything in tiers 1, and 2.

Painting!
$600 or more per creation only 5 left
Superhero levels of gratitude and a painting of your choice (photo required) painted by yours truly. I paint on paper and it'll be mounted (unframed) as glass tends to smash in the mail and I don't want you to cut your little fingers and sue me. This is a 70% price reduction on my usual private commissions, a bargain no less! Plus everything from tiers 1 and 2.


Also, if you just want to straight-up donate this amount out of sheer kindness, I won't force you to take the painting as that would be rude.

Hyper-realist Painting!
$2,200 or more per creation only 2 left
Faintworthy levels of gratitude and a hyper-realist painting of your choice (photo required) painted by yours truly. I paint on paper and it'll be mounted (unframed) as glass tends to smash in the mail and I don't want you to cut your little fingers and sue me - again. Plus everything from tiers 1 and 2. It's significantly less than I usually charge for private commissions of this kind. It also conveniently pays for the freedive training course itself, so I will love you.


Again, if you simply want to straight-up donate this amount out of pure unadulterated kindness, I won't force you to take the painting as that would be rude.

Whole Training Trip and Relocation
$8,500 or more per creation only 1 left
Heart attack levels of gratitude and maybe a tear. I know anyone pledging at this level would be doing so out of the nuclear-level kindness of their Jupiter-sized heart and probably won't want anything at all from yours truly, but I still come bearing gifts. This pays for my whole trip: training, relocation, accommodation and basically a new life for me. And I'll love you so much that I'll dedicate my novel, Fisk, to you. Unless of course you want to remain anonymous as I'm an equal opportunities kind of giver. And let's face it, it if gets illegally downloaded as many times as my previous efforts, you'll also be famous! 


Also dinner with me in Central London (you have to get here under your own steam). You can't get better than that!


Plus everything in tiers 1, 2 and 3.

Goals
$25 of $2,000 per creation
When I reach this goal in total I'll produce my novel, Fisk, as an e-book. It'll be exclusively available to Patreon sponsors from the $25 level for 3 months thereafter, before going on general release - so you get to read it first. Lucky dogs.
